A few metro Atlanta school districts are starting the new year this week. Clayton County schools began the year Monday with virtual learning for its students. Gwinnett County Public Schools, the state’s largest district, will resume classes remotely Wednesday. The district has said it will gradually move to in-person learning “shortly after the school year starts” for parents who choose that option and as public health conditions allow.
On Thursday, Coweta County schools will start the school year with remote learning, and Forsyth County schools will offer both in-person or virtual learning for their students and parents. Along with Cobb, Fulton and DeKalb County schools start the new year next Monday and Atlanta Public Schools will resume classes Aug. 24.
